"the onion" as a joke named him sexiest man in alive in a poll. it was meant to be a joke. the chinese published it thig it was real. >> we know it's not real. good about him is he showed his wife. that gives a lot of hope to the north korean public. you never saw his father's w

to successfully negotiate and to forge a compromise that appeals to both republicans and the far left in mr. obama's party. the president metwith senate majority leader harry reid this afternoon and talked with speaker boehner to begin anew that effort to reach compromise. >> averting this middle-class tax hike is not a democratic responsibility or republican responsibility. with their foes the american people have determined that governing is a shared responsibility between both parties in this congress laws can only pass with support from democrats and republicans, and that means nobody gets 100 percent of what they want. lou: there are only ten days remaining tothe fiscal cliff. president obama headed to value within actually minutes, and members of congress have also gone home for chrrstmas vacation already. in a news conference today, speaker boehner admitted negotiations wh the president ha, indeed, been difficult. >> until the president on monday, these are my bottom lines. the president told me that his numbers, $1 trillion in new revenues, 850 billion in spending cuts was his bottom-line.
if politicians, political leaders and corporate leaders, civic leaders make it the news. >> president obama put together a task force. what we're going to do is not track that task force. what we should do is track the task force and hold them accountable, but we don't do that. >> here's why i disagree. journalists say if politicians are going to talk about civil rights, we're not going to make it a front burner issue. journalists say if politicians don't talk about gay marriage, we're not going to cover it. your seeding responsibility to a political class that wants to duck uncomfortable issues and not to be advocates and don't they have a responsibility to say we just saw 20 children killed -- >> we covered civil rights and the gay rights because it was in the streets. we covered it because it was a legitimate news story. this is a legitimate news story. we can't go on "today" show or cnn in the morning week after week covering the story that is only being talked about on sets like this. >> there was a mall shooting. there was a mall shooting two days or a week before this where two people we
guess -- you'll never guess what president obama recently admitted not only does our fearless leader like the song gang nam-style, he likes to do the word. the president admits he does the dance to get under the skin of both of his daughters malia and sasha. apparently very successful at that and the "gangnam style" song has hit a major milestone as well. hit more than a billion with a "b," a billion hits on youtube. wow. ♪ >>> president barack obama is among the mourners paying respects to late senator daniel inouye right now in hawaii. senator inouye died monday of respiratory complications. he was 88 years old. the president is also taking time-out today to visit the grave site of his grandfather, stanley dunham. i'm melissa rayberger. let's take a look at some of the top stories making news right now. former president george h.w. bush is likely to spend christmas in the holidays. he's been in the hospital since november. doctors said he should build up his energy before he goes home. >>> a majority of egyptian voters yesterday appear to have approved the constitution and if you
the return. host: the book is "the end of the line." jonathan martin, you write that president obama had never been on a comfortable up being coached before becoming the most powerful leader in the world. guest: this is not unique to president obama. if you look at performances by incumbent presidents, it is tough. they are not used to being challenged in the way that they invariably are. i think it was especially acute in obama's case because he did not take romney that seriously. glenn says in the e-book, to the effect that mitt romney is barely human. president obama did not think that romney was a good candidate. he is getting ready for this debate in the wake of the 47% gaff that romney made. it is our conclusion that he did not get on his a-game because he did not think he was playing against an a-league opponent. host: mitt romney succeeded in the first debate. let's watch. >> governor romney says he wants to repeal dodd-frank. it appears we have some agreement that a market place to work has to have some regulation. in the past, governor romney has just said, roll it back. so the
obama's presidency. it is utterly impossible for me to conceive of senate leaders that i grew up with being as different as it can be from howard baker or any of the great leaders. i think it is contrary to the way that the senate worked when it worked at its best. the senate is supposed to be the national media aretor. that is a place where the parties come together and reconcile and not inflame differences. it does not work that way at all in the past -- in a long period of time. the frustration i have the senator mcconnell is number one, he deepened the problem. he has driven the senate to a much lower poiny. -- point. number two, he knows better than that. if you read an interview he did with politico, he said that he rises above partisan as hiism. he mentioned his role model is senator john sherman cooper, a great republican senator. he knows what you are supposed to do in the senate, but it was simply a conscious strategy not to do it. i think that is a real problem. it has injured the senate. it is damaged the country. assuming we have a deeply divided country and a very p
biden. gentlemen, president obama tonight said he had spoken with speaker boehner in addition to meeting with senate majority leader harry reid. >> i just spoke to speaker boehner, and i also met with senator reid. in the next few days, i've asked leaders of congress to work toward a package that prevents a tax hike on middle-class americans, protects unemployed for 2 million americans and lays the groundwork for deficit reduction. that's an achievable goal. that can get done in ten days. once this legislation's agreed to, i expect democrats and republicans to get back to washington and have it pass both chambers. >> jared bernstein, is this actually a setback for the president insofar as the embarrassed speaker was someone at least with whom he was dealing and now the president really doesn't have a negotiation partner? >> i don't think so. i do think in a way it's a setback for the nation because the president and speaker boehner were actually moving to a credible, plausible compromise at the very beginning of the week. and, of course, that's horribly off track now when john boehner de
. the investigation still ongoing. >>> well, "time" magazine named president barack obama their much-anticipated person of the year for 2012, but another world leader that snagged the number one spot in "time's" reader poll with 5.6 million votes and here to tell us who it is. nadia. >> well, he's the world youngest leader and appointed by his father and he's none other than the leader of north korea, kim jong-un. >> he is pretty controversial, how did he win out against all these other people in a reader poll? >> "time" magazine itself will tell you it's not a very scientific poll, but he won even over jon stewart. jon stewart is only second. but i think there was a little bit of humor in the vote. >> speaking of humor, "the union i union" named kim jong-un, but the chinese government thought it was real and they reported it. >> but, remember china is north korea's greatest ally and supporter. so, china does see him as sexy. >> why the fascination with him? >> again, the third in the kim dynasty. his grandfather was the founder of north korea. we never saw a photograph of kim jong-u
every day on this issue and to our leader nancy pelosi and all of my colleagues. president obama and the american people are demanding change and we can bring that change by passing this friday a ban on the massacre assault magazines. we can pass it. believe me, if guns made anyone safer, we would be the safest nation on earth. we have more guns per capita than any country on earth. and after the unfathomable tragedy, our country is united and determined in a demand for change. without change in our gun policy, we cannot expect the outcome to be any different from what we are already experiencing and we have already had too many mass murders and the cost is unbearable. these were elementary schoolchildren. and their teachers. but there have been movie goers. americans going to town hall meetings. there are some who say any gun restriction is an imposition on their liberty. but they must understand that the level of gun violence in america today is an imposition on the liberty of all americans. millions of people. today we call on speaker boehner to work together with us to make a
report from nbc's ron mott in boston. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. >> reporter: as mitt romney, members of his campaign staff and top gop leaders continue assessing how he lost the election to a vulnerable incumbent president, the oldest son of the former massachusetts governor is raises eyebrows about his dad's initial reluctance to make a second white house run. in a story published in sunday's "boston globe," tag romney says his father "wanted to be president less than anyone i've met in my life. he had no desire to run. if could have found someone else to take his place, we have been ecstatic to step aside" "boston globe" reporter michael krenish interviewed tag romney. >> i know there were serious discussion and concerns at the time before he decided to run and lacked at the field of competition and saw it was pretty weak. his family pushed him to say he would be the best person, gimp the wait field has taken shape. >> reporter: nbc's garrett haake spent a year cover the campaign. >> in between campaign romney was stunned by the loss bu

, no word if president obama has actually spoke on the congressional leaders at this point. i can tell you that conversations are going on at the staff level. but the reality is that the hard work, the final touches probably won't be put on these bills or this bill, rather, that they're hoping to get until lawmakers, the president, return to washington. and of course that won't happen until after the christmas holiday. this has a lot of people worried, alex, because as you say there's not a lot of time left to get a deal done. president obama, house speaker john boehner, were very close to getting a deal. president obama had given a little on entitlement reform, house speaker john boehner had given a lit until terms of agreeing to increase taxes. but they just couldn't get to the finish line. ultimately, everything sort of fell apart. i've been speaking to aides at the white house who say president obama doesn't feel as though he needs to give in a whole lot more because he won the election and he ran on a platform of increasing taxes on those making $250,000 or more. chuck schumer address

for that in the short term? >> no. if you want leaders, then you have to lead the president has been a pathetic fiscal leader. he's produced three budgets and can't get one vote for any of his budgets. boehner will be tip o'neill. obama needs to be ronald reagan. would i vote for revenues, including tax rate hikes, even though i don't like them to save the country from becoming greece but i'm not going to set aside the 1.2 trillion in cuts. any hope of going over the fiscal cliff must start in the senate. not one democrat would support the idea that we could protect 99% of americans from a tax increase. boehner's plan b i thought made as soon as. to my republican colleagues, the ronald reagan model is if you get 80% of what you want, that's a good day. i like simpson-bowles. the president is going to get tax rate hikes. to my republican colleagues, if we can protect 99% of the public from a tax hike that, is not a tax increase in my book. chuck, maybe you and me and some other people in the senate can find a way to find this on the short term but on the long term there's not going to be a deal >> you

, nothing that can be scored or analyzed, just another speech. if president obama wishes to avoid the fiscal cliff then he with all of the power and influence he holds as the leader of this nation must submit to congress in legislative form a plan that he believes can pass both chambers of congress with bipartisan support. no more secret meetings and pointless press conferences. your reaction to both of those? >> yes, i do agree with senator sessions. you know, back room deals, they never work out well. i do commend speaker boehner for allowing the house to work its will and to work by regular order. we have sent all of the bills that the senate needs to address this. the first one went over on may 10th which was reconciliation. august 1st was our tax extenders. the third was on our sequester. and then you finished in september with a path for tax reform. they are all on harry reid's desk. he can pick up whatever he wants. now for the president to think that just taking a break from the discussions will solve the issue, i don't understand what he thinks is going to come from that. we have ha
